5 mountain chalets perfect for a summer getaway
Five splendid spots for the summer
Although the word ‘chalet’ may conjure up mental images of snow-covered slopes and steaming mugs of hot wine, mountain chalets are just as fun in the summer. Boasting outdoor hot tubs, sun-kissed terraces and vast grounds, these are a few of our favourite spots for a sun-kissed vacation in the mountains.
Abode at Hilltop Hideaway
Tucked away on the hillside, offering incredible views from its elevated perch, Abode at Hilltop Hideaway is a serene summer retreat. The perfect base for those wanting to get out and explore the endless mountain activities on offer, the chalet is also just a short walk away from the bustling restaurants, bars and boutiques of historic Main Street - the best of both worlds. Soak up the magnificent mountain views from the vast, sun-kissed terrace, before returning to the hot tub to enjoy a spot of stargazing amidst the balmy summer breeze.
